Red string in the empty trees
I wound it up and slowly got it pumping.
Its owner stopped and stared at me,
We both breathed steam and terror.

It's dangerous to tamper with dead passion.
The numb don't easily ignite.

Across the forest floor,
I watched him dim the light.
Even up close,
Even up close,
Even up close we're still speaking in smoke signs.
Smoke Signs.

A warning carried on the wind,
Is it from him?
I lie in wait.
His message is unclear,
But I don't dare ask him to repeat.

I am listening for the first cry of spring,
Then I'll start burning.

Smoke Signs.
Smoke Signs.
Smoke Signs.
Smoke Signs.

We don't need this world of gray to keep us strangers
Love has a way of helping me forget I only know his name:
